Admission and Fellowship Online Application

Admission and Fellowship Online Application

Prospective Students

The UC Davis Online Graduate Application (for admission and fellowships) is now closed. It will reopen in September for the new application season.

The fee to apply for admission is $90 (U.S.) or $110 (international). Transcripts of all your undergraduate and previous graduate study must be sent via mail to the graduate program of which you are applying. Please note that the Application Processing Fee is nonrefundable.

Using this application for admission, UC Davis awards a select few (approximately 25) prestigious fellowships to prospective graduate students. The fellowship descriptions may be found at /prospective-students/financial-support/about-internal-fellowships. To be considered for one of these fellowships, you must submit your application for admission prior to 11:59:00 p.m. PST on January 15, or prior to your program’s final admission deadline, whichever is FIRST. These fellowships are awarded based solely on your application for admission, as there is not a separate fellowship application for these specific UC Davis graduate student fellowships.

Continuing Students

Each fall, Graduate Studies, in conjunction with the Graduate Council, conducts an Internal Fellowship competition for continuing academic graduate students. A "continuing student" is a student who has already been officially admitted to UC Davis and will be registered and enrolled in classes during the 2013-14 academic year. Descriptions of the fellowships offered during this competition can be found at /current-students/financial-support/internal-fellowships.

The application for 2015-16 academic year funding will open in September 2014
